Sarah Palin Wants More TV Time
Sarah Palin’s looking to air another reality show, but so far no network has inked a deal with the Palin clan. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that "Palin and Mark Burnett are pitching another reality series, this one more focused on Palin’s husband Todd and his career as a championship snowmobile racer. But for now, TLC owner Discovery Communications has passed, say sources. And A&E Networks, which entered into a bidding war with Discovery for Sarah Palin's Alaska, also is not interested. So far, networks have balked at the steep asking price – Palin's Alaska went for north of $1 million an episode and sources say Burnett and Palin are asking for a similar payday for the follow-up."
It's hard to get someone to pay you a million bucks when you're no longer relevant. Are Sarah Palin's 15 minutes finally up?
